Civil Twilight

Civil Twilight - Church On Fire

rate me

Two by two, they came into that sunlit room

The only church in this town

The only town that I ever knew.

I sat in the back row, next to the open door

So I could feel the breeze on my skin

And know that there's something more than just this.

I saw her walking down Belmont Avenue.

And from the back window of my father's car

You waved at me and I waved at you

We kissed after years of waiting,

Years of holding hands,

And I felt something shift inside my soul

That no man could understand.

I burn like a church on fire

In the light of the afternoon

I hope you can feel my desire

The flames rise for you.

One by one, I went through all the things I've done

To get to this place I stand

Where I look down and don't recognize my own hands.

I wrote you a letter for every day that I was away

But how many words does one man need to say what he needs to say

I burn like a church on fire

In the light of the afternoon

I hope you can feel my desire

The flames rise for you.

Yeah, that was me

I poured the gasoline

I lit the match for everyone to see

Fireworks in my heart

Yeah, that was me

I burned it to the ground

Yeah, that was me

I burned it all down

I burned this to the ground

Everything that has let us down

Everything that has let us down.

One by one, I went through all the things I've done.
